The Earth Charter International is pleased to announce the creation of the following new national Earth Charter websites USA, Finland, Nigeria, Azerbaijan, Jordan and Italy (the ones on Vietnam, Indonesia and Latvia are under construction). Making basic information on the Earth Charter available in as many languages as possible is a key part of the ECI strategy. The purpose is to reach out to individuals and groups in different parts of the world in their own language. It is also envisioned that these national EC websites will feature more news about EC activities in each country.
